The Prayerful Word - October 15

Daily blessings and prayers from Scripture.

Jude 1:20-21 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.


Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.


Judges 10:15 But the Israelites said to the LORD, "We have sinned. Do with us whatever you think best, but please rescue us now."


Jeremiah 31:3 The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.


Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.


Psalm 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.


May you stand every place God directs you and speak all of the words He gives you to each of the people He brings you, whether it be words of comfort or of rebuke, of acceptance or of warning, for He desires that none would perish, and takes no delight in the death of the sinner, seeking only for them to turn from their own way and be obedient to Him, that He may relent from the disaster that evil requires, and instead bring the blessing that obedience permits.  Jeremiah 26


May you clearly discern between that which is sacred and that in which the sacred dwells, giving the vessel honor but giving the Lord praise, seeking the One Whom you cannot see, and not settling for the vessel just because you can see it. Jeremiah 26


May you trust in the hand of the Lord to provide for and protect you, not choosing to leave the work He has assigned you or responding in fear to the anger of man or God's enemy, not trusting your own understanding or depending on the strength of the arm of flesh, for the Lord Almighty watches over His word to perform it and will rescue you through ways you cannot see by paths you have not known. Jeremiah 26


May you submit, in meekness, to the powers God designates and obey, as unto Him, the authorities God chooses as His servants, for they have a role to play in His plan, and no will shall be established on earth save for the will of the Father. Jeremiah 27


May you have confidence in the Lord that He is faithful and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one, and that He will direct your heart into God's love and Christ's perseverance, delivering you from wicked and evil men as you work to honor and spread the message of the Lord rapidly. 2 Thessalonians 3


My child, do not expect physical or spiritual ease during harvest season. I assign both workers and warriors for the field, for this is the season in which the raiders are seen in the land, seeking to steal the harvest for themselves, and destroy any part of the harvest they cannot steal. I am calling you to long hours, hard work, extreme conditions, full alertness and constant watchfulness.

Expect the barricades to be in your way, My laborer, for that is why I have empowered you to scale a wall. There will be troops of robbers riding through the land, My warrior, for that is why I have prepared you to run against a swarm of thieves.

Though I teach your hands to war and make your feet sure like hinds feet on high places, do not trust your skill with the bow to rescue you or your strength with the sword to save you. Seek Me for direction, ask Me whether a battle is yours to fight, for at times I will tell you to stand by and see the deliverance that I will bring you. At other times, I will give you the strategy by which the enemy will be routed, but always know that the victory is Mine to give you in order that you can manifest what I have worked in you.

Whether you find yourself engaged in spiritual battle from sunrise to sunset, or need to endure no greater challenge than stacking the sheaves of grain that have been reaped in the field, you are called to demonstrate and exercise the divine nature that has been worked in you through your submissive yielding to My Spirit and My Word. I set the boundaries across which the enemy cannot cross, but I do not shield you from the requirements I expect of My children as My representatives, My ambassadors, members of My family who bear My name and My honor before the world.


May you always follow Christ's example in all you do, living according to the teaching of the Word which godly people have demonstrated for you and the Spirit has made life to you, ever laboring in the work of the Lord, not seeking to exercise “rights” but to walk alongside others as a model, never tiring of doing what is right. 2 Thessalonians 3


May the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way, and be with you always. 2 Thessalonians 3


May you be certain that the Lord will forgive the iniquity of His people and cover all their sins, setting aside His wrath and turning from His anger as they turn from following their own ways with sorrow and repentance, humbly confessing their wickedness and seeking the Lord with their whole hearts. Psalm 85


May you listen to what God the Lord says as He promises peace to His people and to His saints, if they will not return to their folly, for He will restore His people and put away His displeasure, showing His unfailing love and granting His salvation, which is near to those who fear Him, that His glory may dwell in the land. Psalm 85


May you allow faithfulness to spring forth from your heart while righteousness looks down from heaven, as it goes before Him and prepares the way for His steps so that the Lord can indeed give what is good and the land will yield its harvest, once love and faithfulness meet together, and righteousness and peace kiss each other. Psalm 85


May you exercise moderation in your enjoyment lest indulging excessively cause you to despise it. Proverbs 25:16
